Annular eclipse of the sun

On the evening of the day before yesterday, I saw shadow plates for the sun eclipse in a convenience store.  ”But Katya might have bought them”.

Katya said she had not bought ones, so I thought I would buy a couple the next day.

However, I forgot to buy them; when I went to convenient stores in the evening yesterday, I could not find them any more.

Next annular eclipse will not be seen for more than 300 years in Japan. I would probably not see it any more.

At 6 AM this morning, the sky was dim with clouds. “Hey, it was wise I did not buy them.” However, at 7 AM, the sky became very clear. Very clear but getting dim again, because of the eclipse this time.

Yesterday, Katya had put on the table her sunglasses and two pairs of ski goggles of us.  Now, we took them all and went into Smart. Through the car window and the three pairs of glasses, we saw the sun.

Yes, the moon was covering the sun, and the Ring! I tried to take pictures, but it was still too bright for the sensor of the camera.  So, I gave it up.

And the sky was soon getting brighter.  Katya was very clever in preparing those glasses.
